article imageCheney proud of 'F-Bomb'

By Michael Bearak     Apr 23, 2010 in Politics
Joe Biden wasn't the first Vice President to drop the "F-Bomb," Dick Cheney beat him to the punch in 2004 when he told a Senator to "F$*k himself."
It has been six years since Dick Cheney told a senior lawmaker to "F*$k himself" and the Democrats jumped all over the outburst using it as a clear sign of Chaney's hard-heartedness.
Six years later Biden was overhead whispering in President Obama's ear about the passage of universal health-care saying, "This is a big f*%king deal."
Still Cheney is not embarrassed about his statement, he actually looks back on it with pride. He told Dennis Miller on Thursday, "You'd be surprised how many people liked that. That's sort of the best thing I ever did."
Rules of the Senate prohibit members from using "unbecoming" language on the Senate floor when in session. Still, the rule says nothing about the Vice President's conduct. The original comment was made in reference to Sen. Patrick Leahy, currently the chairman of the Senate Judiciary Committee.
